The Texas Chainsaw Massacre -Atari 2600-

Texas Chainsaw Massacre on the Atari 2600

*Not a poster, but worth a mention!*

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was also released in 1983 for the
classic gaming console the Atari 2600. Again, Wizard Video Games
is again responsible for this rare classic gem. This game is even more hard to find then the Halloween game, also for Atari 2600. Some stores refused to sell the game and others kept it behind the counter. If you wanted to buy it, you had to ask for it. There were many protests when the game was released. Some people claimed it was promoting violence! I had to giggle at this to, because when you see the game in action, you say to yourself..."this is violent?". lol. People back then would shit themselves if they saw today's games being sold then. Also, another little piece of info about horror movies being turned into video games for the Atari 2600 is the unreleased video game The Entity! 20th Century Fox also planned to release a video game based on the disturbing horror movie The Entity. But sadly 20th Century Fox did not go thru with releasing the video game. Its unclear why, but people speculate about it. Its said the game didn't seem to be very accurate with the movie its self, so who knows what happened. I say release these games for the more modern gaming consoles. Redo them and do them some justice!!!!

  1. It really is kinda sad and a bit funny that they thought those video games were to graphic and now today parents let their kids have just about any game some with very graphic sex and killing scenes just sad really.
